A man was arrested on Wednesday after he was allegedly caught with over 200 illegal narcotics pills in his car.
According to the arrest affidavit, 36-year-old Jerrfrey Hollins was driving his seven-year-old-son when he was stopped by officers.
He was first seen behind the wheel of a 1998 Toyota in Springdale Road. Officers said they stopped the vehicle because one of the rear brake lights was out.
The officer who initiated the traffic stop reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana and seeing a small backpack and zip-lock bags on the floor.
The officer also said Hollins seemed very nervous.
When questioned about the odor, Hollins reportedly told officers his “girl” smoked in the vehicle often, but he wasn’t a marijuana smoker.
The affidavit said police used the marijuana smell as probable cause to search Hollins’ vehicle.
When he stepped out of the car, he admitted to having about 100 pills in the car but said they were not his.
Police said they found a baggie with a green leafy substance in the small backpack along with a clear mason jar and a thermos. The thermos reportedly contained several plastic bags with multiple rectangular multicolored pills.
Meanwhile, the mason jar contained two plastic bags with several types of multicolored pills with imprints.
The leafy substance was identified as marijuana while the rectangular pills were found to be as Xanax and the imprinted pills were methamphetamines.
Hollins allegedly had 220 methamphetamine pills that weighed 41.35 grams and an undisclosed number of Xanax pills weighing 21.7 grams.
Police said the amount of pills Hollins was carrying suggested he was selling and distributing the drugs. He was arrested and charged with delivery of a controlled substance and booked into the Travis County Jail.
